[ What is " Onigirazu " ? ]
You know Japanese rice boll called “ONIGIRI” means “to grip and shape rice with both hands.” Against it “ONIGIRAZU” means “not to grip.“ It’s not only easy to make but also looks very attractively.
We'll make it from cooking some of the ingredients, like an Ganmodoki.

[ About fun experiment about DASHI & UMAMI ]
We'll compare to drink some dashi soups for learning the way of thinking about Japanese cuisine.
For vegan and vegetarian(if you want), I prepare Shojin-dashi.
You could satisfy your curiosity about Japanese food !

About Host



Hello. I’m Emiko who have had own cooking class for kids since 2006. I've also taught about Japanese soup called dashi at some elementary schools as a volunteer in recent years.
Before becoming 50 years old, I made up to start this cooking class to convey the fascination of Japanese food for foreign people. I hope I can share happy time with you.
The venue I rent is right across from Toji temple. You can cook enjoying the view of Five-storied pagoda from the window !!
